Pieta Brown :: Postcards

by

De lijst van medewerkers op Postcards, de nieuwe CD van Pieta Brown, is indrukwekkend: Calexico (op de angstaanjagend fraaie opener In The Light), Mark Knopfler (die zichzelf overtreft op Street Tracker), David Lindley (in topvorm op Take Me Home). Het maakt duidelijk hoe graag andere muzikanten met haar spelen. Maar het is zonder concurrentie Pieta Brown die, geholpen door echtgenoot en gitarist Bo Ramsey, de show steelt. Ingetogen prachtliedjes, die desondanks bol staan van de spanning. Ze fluistert, ze praat, ze zingt; zo intiem dat het lijkt alsof ze in je kamer aanwezig is. Postcards is een geweldige plaat van de dame uit Iowa City, een van de hoogtepunten van 2017.

It was in hotel rooms across the country that Pieta Brown wrote most of the songs on her gorgeous new album, ‘Postcards.’ Like any touring musician, she was on the road to survive, balancing the rewards of performing music for a living with the challenges of trying to stay connected to loved ones and other artists while in motion. So, when she was finally stationed at home, she decided to send out some postcards. These weren’t just any postcards, though, these were musical postcards, the stripped-down, acoustic shells of new songs she’d written while traveling, and she sent them to folks like Mark Knopfler, Calexico, Mason Jennings, David Lindley, Carrie Rodriguez, Caitlin Canty, and The Pines among others. Her instructions to each were simple: write back.
